CONSULTATIONS: Vehicle safety – technical requirements & test procedures for EU type-approval of event data recorders (EDRs)
(Source: European Commission)
EDRs are used in vehicles to record and store data (e.g. speed, braking force, airbag deployment, status of safety systems) in case of a collision.
EDRs are set to become mandatory in mid-2022 for new types of passenger cars and vans under revised EU rules (General Safety Regulation). The anonymised EDR data will be used for accident research and analysis.
This initiative sets out the requirements for type-approval of vehicles with regard to EDRs.
